Hoboken Week in Review – 9/13/2009

9/13/2009:

Don’t forget the Police Survey!

Anyone that might have missed the story last week – please participate in the survey the Hoboken Community Policing Bureau is issuing – in order to help improve services provided by the HPD.

So what made the most discussed entries for the week ending Sunday, September 13th, 2009?

Across the board topics!

  1. OBAMA!
    Believe it or not – there is great debate here in Hoboken about National Politics – the 300+ comments serve as evidence.
  2. MASON!
    Expect some kind of Mayoral announcement from 2nd Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason this week.
  3. BRIDGE!
    The “way out of the way” pathway connecting the Newport area in Jersey City to the Lackawanna Train Terminal opened up last week.
  4. DISREGARDED!
    The bright orange “do not dare park here” bollards at 11th and Bloomfield are ignored like the ugly chick at a party.
  5. PIER!
    The odd-shaped Pier C Park only has three weeks to finish up to meet the October 1st opening deadline.
  6. BUSTED!
    A big gun-toting multi-suspect arrest and shakedown happens at East L.A. bar on Washington Street.
  7. DEATH WISH!
    The perpetual debate of drivers vs. pedestrians gets some airtime on 411.
  8. REMEMBERING!
    Hoboken held it’s annual memorial on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks.
  9. MIFFED!
    Some downtown residents wonder about street closures during suspect block parties.
  10. USELESS!
    One Hoboken resident thinks the Hoboken bike lanes are a failed experiment.
